responsibility of health insurance. let's move forward as the state of massachusetts, as the presiding officer has already done, some 98%, i understand, have health insurance protection in the commonwealth of massachusetts thanks to the leadership of governor mitt romney and the cooperation of both political parties. massachusetts has shown us the way. let's follow that now. let's not turn our back on it. and the last point i'll make on this issue is i keep hearing from the republican side they have a better idea. what is it? i'd like to see the proposal from the republican side that they would put up against the affordable care act. you'll never see it because they basically believe let the market work its will. the market working its will has resulted in 40 million to 50 million uninsured americans. the number is growing, and it shouldn't. it won't under the affordable care act. now, mr. president, i'd like to address the business pending before the united states senate, the employment nondiscrimination act, and ask consent that it be shown in a separate part of the record from my earlier st
always assumed that, based on massachusetts' experience, the initial sign up will be very slow. and in fact, no payments have to be made until december 15 for coverage on january 1. so, while we don't like the problems we had in october and fixing it in november, we do not think it will impact the timeline because we have a six- month enrollment, so we still have four months left and individuals can apply up until march. >> thank you. thank you, mr. chairman. >> now to senator robert. -- senator roberts. senator robert? >> thank you, mr. chairman. 'm going to focus, if i can, on the concerns raised by senator isakson, alexander, and the chairman, on security and privacy. we have a law, the federal information security management .ct, his mother --fisma everything has to have an acronym. it requires each agency to a point a chief security officer to ensure americans private financial and identifying information is protected. and that is a big issue. secretary civilians revealed last week exchanges operating on temporary authority to operate. there is a 2012 12 memo from zyonts,

for massachusetts. here's mitt romney's response. quote. nothing has changed my view that a plan crafted to fit the unique circumstances of a single state should not be grafted on to the entire country. health reform is best crafted by state with bipartisan support and input from its employers as we did without raising taxes and by carefully phasing it in to avoid the ty of disruption we are seeing nationally, unquote. romney, by the way, was not invited to attend the president's annual hall speech. defending obama care. >> question, who aside from mitt romney sees the current chaos as disruptive? >> i think romney was right on the mark there. when you have a bipartisan, when the governor is helping you out to implement the program and the government is part of the program, it works. the state that is receptive to government in healthcare. when you go to mississippi, of course, they will do everything to throw monkey wrenches into the process who don't want to implement it. this is his statement. goes directly with obama is saying. wanting the thing to work and not wanting to work. >> there

: gay marriage is now legal in places like new york, massachusetts, california, you know, the gay states. [laughter] but how long until the rest of the nation sees the light? al filed this report. >> state after state is racing to legalize gay marriage but the real question is not who will be next it's who will be last? statistician nate silver. states probably the slowest to move towards legalization are mostly in the south, what we call the deep south, in particular alabama and mississippi are maybe the last two. >> when you went to mississippi, what do you find? >> benoit to mississippi. >> what about alabama? you went to alabama? >> i'm not been to alabama. >> and you call yourself a stat tissation. >> think it's interesting to add color to a story. >> of course, alabama and mississippi. so who is it going to be? cletus or betus. it was time to see which one of these backwoods inbred, homophobic states will swim against the tide of history longest. we'll see who has the intolerance edge. from the state with segregated sore roarities alabama lawyer doug jones. >> with regard to same-s
-- butrollment period what we've learned in massachusetts is when it comes to enrolling in health care, any of us wait until the end to get it done. what didator tavenner, the administration anticipates would be the pattern, of enrollment, prior, what were you thinking prior to the launch of, and do you the early problems you had are moing to affect the long-ter pattern in enrollment? >> we assumed we would be able to enroll folks throughout the six months, but that that greatest surge would come in december, because we got there were people who wanted coverage on january 1 and the second search would come late february, early march, by the individuals who were not as motivated to get insurance. figures, butment they were lower for october him and i think they will be low, and it follows the massachusetts experience, and that was part of the reason for such a long and rome at period -- such a long enrollment period in the first year. >> and you have time to get these problems fixed? >> i think we have time. >> we agreed that the problems of the website are unacceptable, but our expe
have seen a little bit, it is a causation a state law in massachusetts has caused a shortage of doctors haven't do with more people going to the doctors because they do have insurance. speaker even after seven years massachusetts implemented in obamacare style reform, half of the primary practices in that state remain closed to new customers and the customers who can make appointments are waiting a long time. massachusetts is still feeling those effects. it is a big problem, bigger than a glitching website. jenna: one of the things we were trying to do was reach out to the administration to see if there were any previous statements about the doctor shortage because we have heard about it before. some may say this is a good thing more people have insurance and are going to the doctors because those people who didn't have insurance went to the doctors anyways and got it a bill, doctors would never get paid because the patients can afford it. even though there is a doctor shortage potentially does that mean it will be worse off for the patients? >> they will still be seen but it will take

-election of president obama, the election of the gentlelady from massachusetts, the presiding officer, today. it was a big day. it was a big deal. 20 women came to the senate. a new democratic woman, a distinguished just woman from the state of nebraska, and when they came forward with excitement, filled with passion to serve the nation, represent and be the voice of the people in their state and to get something done, and not only to do it in the lowest common denominator but also to be able to work together for the common good and worry about the next generation, not the next election. that's what we did. let's recall how we felt this time last year. let's get our act together and press on. madam president, i yield the floor. ms. mikulski: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from maryland. ms. mikulski: i was so excited talking about my topic i forget to note when i concluded the absence of a quorum, so i thereby ask to note the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: a senator: madam president? the presiding officer: the senat

was a benefit directed at older people alone and not younger people and what massachusetts tells us the more direct analogous experience tells us young people come in very late. those who in massachusetts qualified for medicaid coverage or other kinds of coverage that did not require the payment of a premium came in fairly large numbers right away. premium paying customers didn't come until late as we cited in the past and only 123 folks came in massachusetts and the first month. for those of us who either have kids or some of you are young enough to remember when you were like at that age, it has always been the expectation in the case that the younger americans will wait until the last minute when they make a decision and apply and enroll. so that was our expectation that there would be the case and we tried to telegraph that in general about enrollment and the crescendo that we expect. there's no question that the problems on the web site have exacerbated the trend, which is why we have to work all the harder to make sure that it gets up and running and that we do everything we can to mak

. however, then senator obama faced accusations of lifting lines from massachusetts governor duval patrick. do you think paul is going to be able to bounce back as obama did, or is this going to hurt him like it hurt biden? >> you know, we can't really remember anything that happened two minutes ago in politics, let alone three years from now in the 2016 election. i don't really think this is going to hurt paul, especially because we're not really seeing, you know, getting flak from republicans for this. democrats and journalists noticed he has been plagiarizing but i don't think he will really have to answer for this fully until you have sort of the republican base making an issue with paul. and maybe people will do that in a republican primary but right now, paul has sort of either side-stepped the issue -- he hasn't totally taken accountability just yet. >> no, he's blamed it on hacks and haters. hacks and haters he said to george stephanopoulos. >> ahe challenged me to a duel, hypothetically. >> do you think you would be able to win such a duel? are you handy with a musket? >> i never

you view it. there's a case in massachusetts where a family had a home. they weren't home at the time. kids and others had a party at their home. they didn't know about it. the question is, should they be liable? the highest court in massachusetts ruled they should not. but there's no question, if you're serving, for example, alcohol at your home or at a place, or at a stadium, you can be responsible for what happens afterwards. what makes this case different is, they weren't serving. this was a parking lot. these kids brought their own booze. so, it was a long shot case that i think the judge probably should have thrown out from the beginning. but the minute it went to a jury, the kraft family was in a tough spot. >> so does this settlement set a precedent? >> the settlement doesn't. but if the case gone to trial, it could have. >>> now to the dramatic rescue caught on tape. a kayaker trapped between two rocks. pinned undera waterfall. his friends racing to free him. abc's john muller has that story for us. >> reporter: a seemingly normal day on the water took a potentially deadly tu
of the story of a good friend in the congress once told a representative from massachusetts told me. we were at a budget summit, one of the first budget summits during the reagan administration and all of these issues that we talked about were on the table. entitlements, discretionary spending, taxes, and it was not easy. in those days leadership said we have to stay in the room and not leave until we got a deal. and we kept working at it. everyone would get up and discuss and someone would eventually get up and walk out. this reminds me about the three missionaries, the british, the french, and the italian missionary who were in a very uncivilized part of the world. and they were making their way down this river and they manage to make it ashore only to fall into the hands of others. and he said in his heart, god save the queen. the french missionary took out his knife and said viva lafrance. the italian took out his stiletto and started punching himself in the chest area and said what are you doing. and he said i'm trying to screw up your canoe.
